First of all I want to thank Lesley for turning me on to this book series.
This is a very comprehensive and well written document of not just UFO sightings and incidents, but the government and military's reaction to it. I could not stop reading this fascinating book, and am taking a breather before I start volume 2. I confess, I stayed up reading this until light started appearing in the windows. Oh, well I am a night owl anyway.
The book has many of the famous cases we have heard about and retells them. The difference is Mr Dolan then goes into what the government reaction was. Using unclassified memos and other documents from the FBI, CIA and other agencies, Mr Dolan gives a rather startling and even chilling account of how the government is involved even though they deny it through existing channels.
It is also good that some of the earlier and misunderstood cases get a look at now, with fresh data released about them. Even Frank Scully's 1950 book has a few high ranking persons interested. The book may be called a hoax now, but some of the stuff written seems to be taken from a truth (Roswell, maybe?).
I urge anyone who is serious about ufology to get this book series and read it. This will open up eyes about the government's involvement. Skeptics should also read this as it shows the government at one point was going to come out and say the flying saucers were extraterrestrial in origin. There is a lot of powerful stuff in this book, and I may start vol 2 sooner than later.
Best recommendation of the books here. Thank you very much Lesley.
